Customers receive an automatic entitlement to take part in the scheme if they receive certain mobility premiums as part of their benefits from the government. Should you be in receipt of any of the following, you are entitled to join the scheme:
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of personal independence payment (PIP)
- War Pensioners’ Independence Payment (WPMS)
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
If you are in receipt of a single-payment benefit, such as Income Support or Universal Credit, some of the above allowances may be included in that one benefit. To confirm that this is the case, speak to a member of staff at your local JobCentre Plus, and they will be happy to advise you of your entitlement.
I’m entitled to join the Motability Scheme. What happens next?
Once we’ve established your entitlement, you need to choose whichever mobility scooter or powered wheelchair your fancy from the extensive range of vehicles in our online store. Give us a call on 01903 232326 and arrange a test drive of your chosen mobility device. This can be arranged for the comfort of your own home, or you can choose to visit our store in Worthing and try it out there. If you’re happy with your choice, we just need to sign you up to the scheme, approve the lease, and it’s all yours.
